2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. yellow cornmeal
1/4 c. milk
1/4 c. fresh orange juice
1/2 c. unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 c. sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp finely chopped orange zest
1 c. plus 2 tbsp dried cranberries
2 tbsp brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350�F. Generously butter cups of a 12-cup muffin tin.
Mix baking powder, salt, flour, and cornmeal in a bowl and set aside. Combine milk and orange juice in a measuring cup and set aside.

In another bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter until it is light and fluffy. Gradually add sugar and beat about 2 minutes, or until very light. Add eggs one at a time, beating each addition until completely incorporated. Add vanilla and orange zest and mix well.

Using a spatula, fold in half the flour mixture, then half the milk mixture. Repeat with remaining mixtures. Fold in cranberries. Scoop batter into prepared tin, dividing it evenly and making sure to get an equal amount of cranberries into each one. Evenly sprinkle brown sugar over top of each muffin.

Bake muffins 30 minutes or until golden.
